Patrice Evra claims that Gabriel Heinze, whose place he took in the team, will receive a standing ovation from Manchester United fans when he plays at Old Trafford.

I can only assume Evra is underestimating the feelings Heinze’s demand to join Liverpool inspired in United fans.

“Gaby has been playing well for Marseille,” he said. “I am pleased for him because it wasn’t easy at first with him being a former Paris Saint-Germain player. There is a big rivalry with Marseille. I am happy to see him doing well and he will get a big ovation when he comes back to Old Trafford because he played so well for United. But I don’t want him to win against his old team.”
